PETALING JAYA: Security at the Bukit Gasing recreation and leisure centre will be enhanced with the setting up of a mobile police station on Saturday.
Bukit Gasing was where a female jogger met a violent end at the hands of knife-wielding robbers last Saturday.
The mobile police station will be manned for two periods daily, from 7am to 10am and from 4pm to 7pm.
Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said the mobile police station was the result of an accord reached by the police and representatives of resident associations in Petaling Jaya.
He said the aim of the accord was to check crime in the area and safeguard the public.
As an immediate precaution, police has stationed uniformed and plain-clothes policemen at the location to ensure the security of the public, Arjunaidi said.
Meanwhile, he urged the community residing in the vicinity of Bukit Gasing to register as volunteers to help police check criminal activities.
On April 20, Ong Ai Sam, 52, and her daughter, aged 17, were confronted by two robbers who were riding a motorcycle when the former were returning home after jogging in Bukit Gasing.
Ong, who told her daughter to make a run for it, was stabbed six times by one of the two men. She collapsed in a pool of blood.
She was confirmed dead upon arrival at the University Malaya Medical Centre.
The police have detained four teenagers, aged between 16 and 18, to facilitate investigations into the murder.
The suspects were picked up in separate raids at the Sri Medan Flats and Bukit Gasing Flats here early yesterday. - Bernama
